their respect. dzhokhar tsarnaev is at boston's hospital. he is on vaent late for and handcuffed to his hospital bed so he won't be able to pull his breathing tube out. he has injuries to his head neck legs and hand. he can't speak because of the neck wounds and may have also sustained hearing loss from the flash bang grenades authorities used. but he is providing written answers where necessary. they are asking whether anyone was helping he or his brother commit these crimes and whether there are anymore undetonated bombs. it is likely they did have plans to carry out more attacks based on the remaining sarsal of weapons. >> the two suspects were armed with handguns at the seen of the shootout and there were more explosive devices. i believe that the only reason that someone would have those in their possession was to further attack people and cause more -- more death and destruction. >> michael: and just how much death and destruction the suspects meant to cause will be part of the government's case against tsarnaev. today the white house announced he will be t
, dzhokhar tsarnaev. a naturalized u.s. citizen, 19 years old, considered extremely dangerous. the hunt is focused, but not confined to a series of communities west of boston proper, including cambridge and watertown. 21 hours since the photo was first released, dzhokhar named on the loose. his older brother, his alleged co-conspirator in the bombing at the marathon died early this morning in a clash with police from which the younger brother escaped. according to one law enforcement source, actually driving over his brother's body. here is the brother's uncle in an emotional plea delivered late this morning. >> i say dzhokhar, if you're alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness. and the victims, from the injured and from those who left, ask for forgiveness from these people. >> we already obviously are learning a lot about these two suspects. we know that dzhokhar who is 19 years old, first came to the united states in 2002, he was 8 years old. his family, he came here on a tourist visa. we know with his mother and his -- at least with his mother. let's go back to the aunt now sp
. >> as you mentioned, justice department officials told cnn dzhokhar tsarnaev is facing federal terrorism charges and state murder charges. preliminary hearing could happen in the next 30 days. a lot hinges on when the suspect is well enough to speak. investigators are eager for him to talk so they can find out who planned the attack. tsarnaev will likely be appointed a federal public defender. for now, the justice department is invoking something known as a public safety exception. this rule is used to question terrorism suspects without reading them miranda rights. the rule was created to question terrorists about other potential threats. senator carl leven says so far there's no connection between the suspect and terrorist groups. leven said to hold him under these circumstances would be contrary to our laws and jeopardize our effort to prosecute him. during interviews before suspects are read their rights is often not admissible during the trial. the issue on miranda rights is further complicated because the u.s. is a u.s. citizen. many of the rules cannot be used on americans. live
who has been all over this story. j dzhokhar tsarnaev will be charged in a civilian court given the debate we have been talking about this this morning. that will be happening to him? >> no question. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound
purchased, about the video surveillance that led them to dzhokhar tsarnaev, and the purpose is to show the evidence that they have against this guy, and they're going to lay some, but not all, of that out in the fbi affidavit. >> mike, precisely, specifically, what is he likely to be charged with? >> reporter: well, it's going to be terrorism-relatinged charges, and that could include a charge for use of weapons of mass destruction. the ied bombs will be, can fit under that section of the federal code, and that -- that and these other charges could -- would lead to the death penalty, if convicted. doesn't mean that the federal government will seek the death penalty, but these charges could result in the death penalty. we won't know whether the justice department is seeking the death penalty from this criminal complaint charge today. that will come much later. >> let's talk about the wound to the throat we're starting to hear about. that apparently has prevented him from being able to speak. how are interrogators going to get around this? just a simple, they ask questions and he writes
of the runners wore black ribbons on their vests in tribute. >>> dzhokhar tsarnaev is in serious but stable condition. he has a gunshot wound to his neck. so far he has been unable to speak to authorities but is reportedly responding sporadically and writing to questions. police captured tsarnaev in a dramatic fashion on friday night in a boat in a backyard in watertown, massachusetts. federal prosecutors could file criminal charges against him as early as today. they are questioning tsarnaev under a public safety exemption which means he doesn't have the right to remain silent because they believe there is an imminent threat to the public. however, when exemption expires there are some members of congress republican members of congress calling on authorities to declare him an enemy combatant and hold him for 30 days in order to continue to interrogate him. we're back with more show after the break. stay with us.

there is something being confused by a lot of folks. if you were to name dzhokhar tsarnaev an enemy combatant, that does not necessarily mean he goes to it now -- to gitmo. you can name him an enemy combatant for purposes of interrogation. after the interrogation is completed, you can transfer him back to the criminal justice system. all that happens is the information you've gotten from him during the time he is an enemy combatant would not be admissible in a court of law. you do not use it for that. you do not use it for criminal prosecution. use it for intelligence. use it to unravel terrorism that may be ongoing and learn more about terrorist groups that are in this country and elsewhere plotting against us. i've got to tell you, it is a red herring to say, i do not want a military tribunal. by the way -- guest: no one is saying that. guest: i've heard others say, this is all about getting him to gitmo. the priority should be to get information from him. or should there -- there could be other ways to do it. the public safety exception allows -- host: we will get to that -- hist: what thi
